MeeGo is a Linux-based open source mobile operating system project[1] which was announced at Mobile World Congress in February 2010 by Intel and Nokia in a joint press conference. Its aim is to merge the efforts of Intel on Moblin and of Nokia on Maemo into one project. It is hosted by the Linux Foundation.[2] According to Intel, MeeGo was developed because Microsoft did not offer comprehensive Windows 7 support for the Atom processor.[3]
Harmattan, originally slated to become Maemo 6, is now considered to be a MeeGo instance (though not a MeeGo product), and Nokia is giving up the Maemo branding for Harmattan and beyond (Maemo 5, aka Fremantle, and previous versions will still be referred to as Maemo).[4]


System requirements
MeeGo is intended to run on a variety of hardware platforms including handhelds, in-car devices, netbooks and televisions.[5] All platforms share the MeeGo core, with different “User Experience” (“UX”) layers for each type of device.
MeeGo provides support for both ARM and Intel x86 processors with SSSE3 enabled [6] and uses btrfs as the default file system.[7]
